BODY CONTACT CLINIC
Multi-hour program incorporating contact specific instruction
Seven Bridges Ice Arena, Illinois
200 x 85 LLC has announced its highly successful BODY CONTACT clinics this coming March. The clinics are one of a kind with “Checking Dummies” that provide players with an opportunity for professional instruction on the skills of awareness, angling, body position and body contact. Each session focuses on helping players develop their confidence in physical situations and reduce the likelihood of injury.
USAH has established new rules which have changed the ages where body contact is allowed thus allowing players to get more comfortable and confident in physical situations. “Body contact is a huge part of hockey and is a skill just like skating, passing and shooting,” said Justin Lewandowski, 200 x 85’s V.P. of Hockey Operations. “You can’t play this game scared. It’s imperative that players learn how to give and receive a check.”
For $175.00, players will receive at least four hours of on-ice instruction over a two-day period. Every player will understand the importance of checking skills and improve them in station based sessions maximizing repetitions by emphasizing proper technique and hitting with a purpose. Clinics will be held at Seven Bridges Ice Arena. Each clinic will be limited to the first 35 travel hockey participants.
